Boeing in Deutschland...

Boeing website here (gonna need a translation is in German).

Everyone is predicting an easy CH-53K win but I doubt it.  The Germans are cost conscious with regard to military spending.  I don't think they'll pay the price for what the CH-53K offers.  Additionally Boeing is making the case that the CH-47 can lift any and everything a military force requires from its helo force.  So far Sikorsky/Lockheed Martin hasn't found an answer to that meme.

My prediction?

CH-47 over the objections of the German Air Force.  It'll be based on cost, not necessarily performance.
